Yaaasssss!!
Great news.
:fire.:

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Praise the Lord! This is great news!
Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one's youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their enemies in the gate. - Psalm 127:3-5

Another quick update. Karson was kicked out of the ICU on Saturday.  :IBCOOL:. He no longer needs dialysis and I think they are pulling his feeding tube today because he is eating like a horse and it is no longer needed.  His kidney and bone marrow biopsy came back clean and they are planning on discharging him by the 9th and possibly as soon as this Thursday. He is super excited to get out and be able to have a bit of normalcy. Bring on the fishing! I will be in contact with you fellas who have offered to help and see if we can work around your schedule and his appointments. He has to be extra cautious so he will have to wear gloves and a mask to prevent exposure to bacteria in the water and fish, dirt etcÖ
We look forward to meeting everyone. I know things may not work out with him being in the hospital longer than expected and everyoneís busy schedule but we will give it a shot. Thanks
Blake

Fantastic news!  Congratulations Karson!!!!! :IBCOOL:

If you guys happen to be in SW WA between now and 9/10 or after 9/22 I'll be spending a lot of time (mostly weekends) on the Columbia out of Kalama or down at Astoria/buoy 10 chasing kings and silvers and have room for 2 on my 18' boat. I have all the gear, all you need is a lunch and a license. Not currently a guide but have 22 years guiding experience.
9/10-22 I'll be chasing elk. :archery_smiley:

Thanks for the offer but I donít think we can make it that far away right now. The wife and I have training on the doís, dontís and cants. That will tell us more on what he is able to do. Sounds like fishing is fine. He canít gut them or handle them without nitrile gloves.
On a side note. He is officially getting released from the hospital tomorrow. We are super excited and nervous at the same time. Hoping to get him fishing this weekend while I am up there.
I did find out that we have to stay within 30 minutes of childrens hospital for the time being which makes this a little more challenging. I will let you guys know when that relaxes a little.

Does anyone have a guide they would recommend for bass fishing around Lake Washington, Samammish or Stevens area. My boy has been fishing every day from fishing docks and having fun but I would like to get him on some bigger fish. Or if you have room in your boat I will cover the fuel.

Found this guide service for Lake Washington: https://365charters.com/fishing/rates-trips/bass-fishing/

Unfortunately, my summer has slipped by and I've booked up every moment available for hosting people on the boat. But, here's what I'll do. See if you can book a guided trip with your boy there in the region and I'll cover $200 of the cost. Sound good? Once you've gone on the trip, just send me a PM and I'll Venmo you some cash.

I know a bunch of guys on here, including myself, have offered to help. Now that your boy is out of the hospital, it's time for us to step up. So, I'll start with $200.

Who else is willing to help?

I'm 100% in for $200.

Also, I am buds w/ some amazing men who are bass fishing nuts who hit Lake Washington all the time. I know they'd love to help if you guys could align schedules. PM me if interested!
